Review session description and speaker bio
Your session description and speaker bio are based on content from your proposal. However, we edit all content to conform to Learning Guild length and format standards. Please review your session description and bio carefully and let us know if the content is inaccurate or no longer aligns with the content you plan to deliver. If you have minor edits, send them to programs@LearningGuild.com.
  • Copy and paste the text from the website to a Word document.
  • Please use the “track changes” option when editing or indicate your edits with bold red text.
NOTE: Please suggest minor edits only. It is not acceptable to change your session’s focus or objectives or to make other significant changes at this point.

Concurrent session materials due
Session slide decks and digital resources can greatly enhance the attendee experience. They’re also something attendees regularly request during and after the event. While it’s not mandatory to submit session materials, we strongly encourage it.
  • All materials you wish to have available during the conference must be sent by email to programs@LearningGuild.com by this date.
  • For information about session material requirements, click here.

  • We will make every effort to process materials received after the deadline prior to the event, but we are unable to guarantee it. Any materials not processed prior to the event will be posted the week following the event.
  • All materials for sessions will be posted on the event resource page. PDF files will also be available through the mobile app.
